Learning The Lessons Of Lament

Devotional

We are so fortunate that we live in the time beyond the cross. We are so incredibly blessed to know that the story of Jesus didn’t end with his death on Good Friday. Because of Easter Sunday—because of the resurrection—we know that silent or not, God held Jesus safe through Saturday. And in that, we can know that God holds us in the silence too. God holds us even if our circumstances make no sense and our despair is very great. 


If we will believe and trust in that, we may be distressed, but we need not be afraid or dismayed. We need not be completely overwhelmed. 


Question: How are you encouraged by the thought that God holds you in the silence?
